I have run several course with groups of up to twenty people exploring and living from mindfulness. They are highly experiential and provide time to be exposed to the core themes of explore, play, love as well as embodying these principles and recognizing freedom.
From Stress to Freedom is a eight week 2 hours per week and one day silent retreat, based on the highly successful mindfulness based stress reduction course.
What would participants would tell others about the course

Slowing down enough to feel how I am moving through life
To be more open, sharing, connection, being aware and grateful
I learnt to accept myself for who I am
To be in the moment and just sit with an emotion. Breath listen to your body , learnt to check my emotion, my physical feeling. Then to choose to stay with that experience or change my emotions or feeling.
“….everything is okay”
The Heart of Community 8 week course 2 hours per week and one day retreat. During this course we will continue to explore the art of staying present to life’s challenges and joys.
